It's a great Pub if you love Heavy Metal or Hard Rock. Great Juke Box with Judas Priest, Ac/DC etc. Cold beer. Nothing fancy but it's a great pub.

Great bar, with wide selection of beers and spirits. Luckely they haven't sold out yet like many of other bars did in Soho. If you like metal this is you place to go in London.

This is a bar and a small one at that! But serves decent beers and has the best Rock/Metal music on tap too! Found this place after a recommendation and we weren't disappointed. Love the beers (Trooper of course!) and the music. Will be back again soon! Keep on rockin!

No dj, just a juke box that you'll have to pay a pound for every three songs. But bar tenders are as professional as it gets, Sophia is excellent and if you are a metalhead you'll eventully find yourself drunk and singing along.

This place is a snug little hideaway just a stones throw from Oxford Street. Always playing great music and has a full bar to boot. I always seem to enjoy their £3 Bulleit Bourbon and Cokes! This place does get pretty packed out in the evening but you always seem to get served reasonably quickly anyway! Great atmosphere always filled... More

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
